Editorial Reviews


"Illustrated by Ewa Podles in a digital format makes the story bright and colorful. I love the names of the family members. Chess Nut, Hazel Nut. Super cute. It's our current favorite bedtime story right now." -

"Another nice feature is the list of acorn facts on the last page.  This gives a parent or teacher an opportunity to take a fun book and turn it into a learning experience." -

5.0 out of 5 stars Adorable concept, illustrations, and story! May 3, 2012
This review consists of 2 parts: 1. My son's review (he's 5.5) and 2. My review (the Mom). These are excerpts - for the full review visit us at our website.

**The Nutt Family by A. Muse was provided to us free-of-charge by the author.**


What I liked and disliked about it:

I really liked the pictures in the book, especially the picture of the family tree in their house and the one where they are floating in the water. But I didn't like the picture of the squirrel because I was scared the squirrel was going to eat them. I also really liked the story and their adventure especially when they are in the water. I liked that it was a story about a brother and sister because I have a sister too and we like to do things together too. We would look after each other too.

My bottom line:

I really liked this book. I would recommend it to both girls and boys my age.


What I liked and disliked about it:

There are many things that I really liked about this book. First, I love the illustrations: the Nutts are adorable and I really like how the illustrations are all from their perspective (i.e., everything looks BIG). I like the clever names given to the Nutts, especially Chess Nutt (ok, that one took me a while!) The story itself is very clever and engaging, combining the right level of tension with the touching loyalty and sibling love between the brother and sister. I also want to draw attention to and applaud the author for the inclusion of "fun facts" about acorns on the final page of the book. I really like the trend I'm seeing to include an educational component to children's books, especially ones targeting younger audiences (under 5 years of age).

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun July 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nutt family Hazel and Fillbert, along with their children Chess and Praline lived in an old Maple tree. The children tied leaves around their necks like capes and pretended to be superheroes. One day a woodpecker, pecking on their home caused Chess to fall from his knothole. His sister Praline jumped out to help him. Soon they found themselves in a real life adventure. This is a wonderful story. I loved the way the author gave each acorn the name of a different type of nut. When I read about them tying leaves around their necks, I was reminded of my sisters and I tying scarves around our necks pretending we could fly as we jumped off of the porch. I also loved the facts at the end of the book about acorns. Even though I grew up with lots of oak trees, yet I was still able to learn a lot from this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book everyone will enjoy! April 24, 2012
The Nutt children, Chess and Praline, loved to have pretend adventures. They wished and wished they would have an adventure of their own. When Chess falls out of their tree home and Praline jumps out to save him, the Nutt children get raked up and their real life adventure begins! Will the Nutt kids survive their nutty adventure?!?

This is a hilarious picture book! I love the names of the Nutt family, Filbert, Hazel, Chess and Praline (come on, that's FUNNY). The adventure the Nutt kids go on is exciting but not too scary for younger kids. The illustrations are really cool too. The last page of the book has some acorn facts like "Acorns are a food source for pigs, deer, woodpeckers, bears, squirrels and mice, but they are toxic to horses."

I think everyone will enjoy this fun read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Clever children's read! July 5, 2012
The Nutt Family: An Acorny Adventure tells the story of two acorn siblings, Praline & Chess who finally get to go on a real adventure instead of the pretend ones they usually go on from the comfort of their home inside a tree. This quirky book has all the makings of a typical adventure book for children, but is told from the point of view of unlikely characters, nuts. The illustrations are colourful and captivating, and very well thought out (for example, in the Nutt family's home, there is a picture of a tree that has other Nutt Family members hanging from it, entitled "Family Tree"). There is also an Acorn Fact Sheet at the end of the book that was a pleasant surprise!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Nutt Family July 31, 2012
By K Crew
I was provided this book free of charge by the author.

My 4 year old loves this book. He is really into super heroes and loves the leaf cape. We saw some acorns last night on a walk and he was so excited! This book has made him more interested in nature, which is a huge plus! I like that the words are colored and larger, it seems more fun, and it will be helpful for when he is learning to read. Overall, we really like this book and have read it lots of times in the short time we have had it.

2.0 out of 5 stars 5 and 4 yr olds didn't enjoy it December 9, 2013

As an adult, i thought the story was just ok. It didn't seem to do anything to grab the reader's attention. When I asked the girls why they didn't enjoy it, both said the adventure was boring.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute but... September 5, 2013
By UBizz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a cute little story but the formatting of the book on my Google Nexus did not work meaning that the pics were never on the same page as the words and so it was hard for my 2 year old to enjoy this one as much as should would have if she could have associated the illustrations with the words I was reading.
